Not a lot of great pictures over the last few months sadly. I guess that’s what happens when we’re so busy.
Redflare took the kids out to a ‘dinner with Santa’ event at the local fire station. They loved it.
The food wasn’t overly impressive in Newbie’s eyes, and Thunderer opted to just have a cookie. :p
Food wasn’t the main reason to go though, so it works.

Little Miss had a routine checkup on the schedule so Redflare made a fun day of it.
Lunch at the mall food court with two of her three girls.
And then on the way out she saw a menu for a different food court offering…
Thunderer found a stick and declared it was her walking stick.
I’m not going to argue with an almost five year old (at the time of the picture.)
We’re getting there! Halloween pictures are a go!
If you can’t tell, Superman is Thanos, I’m Gandalf, TJ is Spiderman, Newbie is a sloth, Little Miss is a dark fairy/angel, and Thunderer is a “puppy” (Scooby Doo was the only way we could pull that one off.)
TJ went and coordinated costumes with his girlfriend too. She went as Silk.

We finally got a nice fall day after the pumpkin patch in late October. It was cool but not cold so it was time to get out to the park again!
The wind was kind enough to gather up a bunch of leaves too, so the kids enjoyed playing in those.
It’s tradition now that we go out to the local pumpkin patch and let the kids pick out their pumpkins.
It’s also tradition to be sure to grab a picture of everybody on top of a haybale while we’re there.
We also decided to catch a picture of ourselves. A nice way to update our fall facebook profile picture.
Once everything was picked out it was time to play a little bit before heading back. The teens decided to have a contest and see who could reach the farthers up a halbale after a running start.
It didn’t end as was expected.
Meanwhile, Newbie was quite fearful of the prospects of Thunderer driving…

I remember this October day pretty well. It was a lot colder than expected so we didn’t stay out long at all, even though they were bundled.
The swings didn’t provide enough shelter to the wind so they went to the other equipment.
Any outside time is better than none though.
Especially if these kinds of smiles are the reward.
